E. T. MILLER, "The Historical Development of the Texas State
Tax System," is a well-known authority on taxation, a professor
of economics at the University of Texas, and an author of a
financial history of Texas. His hobby is numismatics. Historical
research done by Dr. Miller in 1912 resulted in the lifting of a
ban on investments in Texas municipal bonds by New York
savings banks. These bonds had been under ban because Texas
had been classed as a state which had repudiated debt incurred
since January 1, 1861. Dr. Miller's account convinced the New
York attorney general that Texas was not guilty of repudiation,
other than that made mandatory by the Fourteenth Amendment,
and the ban was lifted.
